One of the reasons the Hilberling is so expensive is because it is analog.

HONESTLY:  if it costs more than $2500, how many people here would still buy

As much as I would enjoy it, I would not spend that much money on it.  
When I moved from the states back to Germany, I forgot to take my money-tree
with me.

I think there's been some very valid points made in this discussion.  Either
go head-to-head with price/performance of the SDR competition, or offer a
very high-end analog rig and promote it as such.  Ten Tec could offer a
Hilberling-like transceiver at a fraction of the cost and easily do it with
better performance.  

I would leverage circuitry from the KK7B and Tayloe designs.  Include a 2nd
Rx port for multiple purpose use including phase nulling of noise sources as
an alternative to ineffective DSP noise blankers that all-too-often add
artifacts to reception.  AC2IQ has developed a highly effective analog
linearizer.  Include that too with with an external amplifier loop.
